Brake bleeder nipple dust cap

The little rubber dust cap that went over your brake bleeder nipple has probably decomposed years ago. So what do you do to prevent road crud from clogging up the bleeder nipple?

Go down to your local home repair store (Menards, Builder's Square, Home Depot, etc.) that carries wire shelving (such as ClosetMaid). They sell little soft plastic caps to go over the cut rods of the shelving. About a buck or two for a bagful. They don't seem to deteriorate, get hard, or fall off. I've used them for several years.
